If there were only more episodes!
Other dramatic serials on Archive of interest include, Ma Perkins(pace is too slow) and Pepper Young's Family. But Mary Noble has to be the best. You almost feel like listening to the whole serial in one shot! And what great acting. For the part of Larry Noble, the actor couldn't have done a better job. As a long time fan of old time radio, his personification of a character was the most real! I believe he also played, The Falcon, bus as the episodes here were in a transitional period for the lead actor, it's hard to say.
